Mayumi Yamae: Pursuing Scattering Flowers

2014.04.05 – 04.19

Kouichi Fine Arts presents “Mayumi Yamae Exhibition: Pursuing Scattering Flowers.” Perhaps those flowers are women. Exploring the possibilities of oils to their furthest limits, Mayumi Yamae’s paintings conveys a soft, clinging beauty like a woman’s clear, white skin. “Pursuing Scattering Flowers.” Complicated flowers, like a mix of pride and impatience. Like an aging and mature woman who still slightly clings to a feminine element within herself. These beautiful flowers, however, are not brittle, and are even fragrant.

Seeming to juxtapose beauty and ugliness, Mayumi Yamae’s work certainly evokes a ray of both hope and disquiet. Blooming and spreading gloriously before they scatter away, these flowers may well know of a future life yet to come.
